  • Looking for a 20 or a 17 open

    Looking for a 20 or a 17 in good condition. Don’t have to be perfect but a solid boat.

    You may have seen this one already, This boat was listed on the other shamrock board in late April I think. Was posted last week on the Erie board.

    If it is something you would be interested in Radioman or I can look at it and get you more info. It is only 15 miles from camp.

      Thanks Karen. I sent a message to him for more information. Been tossing around the 17 or 20 with the limited space on the 17 versus the kool factor of a inboard 17, l am leaning towards the 17.

        That Jersey boat looks like a deal. Close to you Greg. I should buy it for myself and junk everything I have.

        Thanks Redneck.

        The one in Jersey is on my radar. The one Karen and Chris looked at is still there too.

          That 17'er up by Karen is back on the market i think it was up in the spring then he took it down.

          That 20'er is real nice with the updated MPI engine probably very close to what you had in your 246.

          The 17'er is a very cool unique boat i would like to see one in person one day.

          I thought Quick was grounded from buying more boats

            The 17 has been for sale since 10/20

            The 20 l like too and think that would be a better fit.

            l have never seen a 17 in person, Jerry thinks it’s too small for my needs.

            Not banned, he would just have to buy another rock for Linda! LOL

              I also think it's too small. The 20 would be perfect for what you said you wanted. I am forever in you debt. My grandson dumped the POS he bought and has been using my old boat nearly every week.

                  Deck over the tanks will come up easily. Tanks were replaced with engine, they should be good. Take hatch up and look and smell. How long has this been for sale. This time of year is good for buyers. Winter storage etc.

                      Bummer, Are they going to put it back on when it’s fixed?
